You are mad, this blog is mad.
Absolutely really brilliant!
I’ll be back
Moi saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 8:10 am
I am moving this to the top of the list of reasons I won’t let my girls have Barbies.
Miss Wisabus saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 8:20 am
I saw that on the news last night. And I’m pretty sure I recognized the lead POOPING DOG from Pioneer Woman’s blog.
Steve saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 8:46 am
Is there another accessory for a beat-up, used barbie car to donate to the Mattel kidney foundation?
The Domestic Goddess saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 8:47 am
It’s a good thing my boys don’t play with barbies. They are into trains.
Uh-oh. Wait a minute.
jen saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 8:51 am
maybe mattel needs to start developing kiddie gas masks and first aid kits.
and while all of that is atrocious, this right here is hilarious.
Surcie saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 8:58 am
You know, there could be a whole Recall Barbie series. For example, Barbie’s boyfriend could be E. Coli Ken, in homage to the recalled spinach. Shigella Skipper ate the recalled carrots. . .
Nancy saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 12:24 pm
Oh no,not Barbie! /smirk/
I have “collected” Barbie for many years … I am sure I have some original ones with lead or worse!
K saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 12:28 pm
This would be hysterical… if I didn’t have a box of Thomas Train crap that I need to send back to have exchanged for the lead-free models – five years after purchase.
It does a body good.
Crabby McSlacker saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 1:12 pm
Hell, youngsters these days are gettin’ soft. When I was growing up all the toys and furniture and anything else you’d want to lick, gnaw at, or stick in your mouth and suck on were all contaminated with lead and asbestos, plus all the produce was doused with DDT and we did what we were told and ate it anyway.
And did it hurt us? Not a bit. What the hell was I saying? Something about Led Zeppelin? Great band, great band. Nurse, damnit, it’s time for my pills.
JenM saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 1:46 pm
My kids are getting pinecones for Christmas. No danger of recall there, unless we have an outbreak of squirrels who happened to eat Mattel products.

sweetney saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 2:16 pm
i think i just fell in love with you.
Ava saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 2:26 pm
That Barbie is so feindish. First fake magnetic dog poo that hurts childrens intestines if swallowed, and now she has imbedded lead in herself.
Another brilliant post. Bossy for queen!
madmad saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 3:54 pm
I still kinda wish I had (needed) a belt like that, though…
Biddy saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 4:08 pm
*snort* Bossy, Biddy loves you
Cece saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 5:11 pm
Looks like Christmas will be one without toys this year, just so my kids won’t DIE!
Mr Farty saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 6:17 pm
Ooooh, Kryptonite Green, my favorite color!
Melissa in NZ saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 6:48 pm
Maybe this explains her pumped-up, perky bosom too, pthththt …
mcewen saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 7:21 pm
Yup, sign of the times. Used to be ‘made in Taiwan’ or ‘made in Japan.’ It’s just the next wave really.
May Alice saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 7:35 pm
Holy Lead Bazoombas….maybe The Joker has a sinister plot to render American children learning disabled from their very own toys and take over the world…bla ha ha ha (that would be an evil and sinister laugh)
Seriously though what’s up?
DWQ Online saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 7:38 pm
So does this mean I should quit chewing on my Barbie dolls?
wendi aarons saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 8:41 pm
I always suspected Barbie had an STD.
Adorable Girlfriend saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 9:13 pm
Wendi, it wasn’t as obvious as Ken’s because he has the stretch marks around his lips to tip you off.
PunditMom saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 10:34 pm
Gotta get me and PunditGirl one of them!
FENICLE saysSeptember 5, 2007 at 11:02 pm
What every girl in 90210 wants this Christmas!
Sassy saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 1:03 am
Squee ! The perfect gift for suicidal chitlins !
Jonathon Morgan saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 1:33 am
I am still laughing. That was hysterical.
Suzy saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 2:42 am
My uncle needs a dialysis machine and I think this one might do. Could you direct me to what page on the rapidly disintegrating catalog I might find one in XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL Black?
Nadine saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 5:50 am
Glow – in – the – dark Barbie, awesome!
Mr. Fabulous saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 5:58 am
Ooh, I don’t think I have that one yet!
Noelle saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 8:53 am
A little lead paint, it does a body good. Kids these days are too soft.
Tammy saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 11:05 am
HAHA! Sweet belt buckle.
I found you by way of OTJ.
Alice saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 12:07 pm
i need to go out and get all new barbie accessories now, because nothing i currently have goes with radiation-glow green…
CityMama saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 12:44 pm
HA! You rule!
dutch from sweet juniper saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 12:46 pm
she’ll go perfect with 15-Cents-an-Hour Xi Yu, the Chinese factory worker doll I just picked up for the kid. It runs for ten hours on only five kernels of rice!
LOtta saysSeptember 7, 2007 at 12:15 pm
I’ve had to give up my biggest bribe – trips to the dollars store – because of the lead scare. I’m sure a lead detector would be off the charts in the toy aisle there!
Ladybug saysSeptember 8, 2007 at 8:18 am
Scary isn’t it? We just had the kids birthdays and had to look up some of the toys to make sure they weren’t recalls!!! YIKES!
